"Works with Win 7 as long as you download WinPCAP 4.12"
Captures internet packets and allows you to monitor the sources. Color codes the packets as well. I read what the color codes mean, but I haven't had time to analyze exactly what the mean yet to figure out which requests I must block.
You must download WinPCAP 4.12 at http://www.winpcap.org for it to work with Windows 7. It comes with WinPCAP 3.1, but WinPCAP 3.1 is incompatible with Windows 7.
Oh, for anyone else who is interested, if you start a capture and it appears that you are not intercepting any internet traffic, go into the "Capture --> Options" and either check or uncheck the promiscuous mode. If you are still unable to capture packets, then go into "Capture --> Interfaces" and make sure that you are trying to capture packets from the correct interface (I had to do this last step because I wasn't capturing any packets initially). I also opened an internet radio station to make sure that packets were being exchanged.*promiscuous* Sorry, misspelled. Easy thing to do : )
